Clinical research interview tomorrow... help?

  1. 0 Hi everyone,

    So I have an interview for a clinical research nurse position, but I'm really nervous, for a few reasons:

    I think I've put in over 100 applications in the past month, and this hospital is the first to call me in for an interview. I do not have my BSN, but they see I have research experience, but it was only for 3 months (it was a temporary 3 month position, 2 years ago). And even then, that was on animals... but this position is for clinical trials with oncology, and I don't know much about oncology. I was always terrible with knowing anything about cancer medications, at best, I somewhat understand the process of cancer, risk factors, and grading/staging.

    What can I expect tomorrow? I've been trying to research the role of a clinical research nurse as well, but I'm not entirely sure. How much do I have to know, if it's research and clinical trials? Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's tomorrow morning and I can't stop freaking out...

    EDIT: Just a few details to add, I am a new grad nurse, and I don't have any hospital work experience outside of clinicals. That research position for the 3 months is the only thing I have...
